“Today, it has become clear to all the world and especially to our enemies that the power of our revolution is exemplary and that they cannot stand against it,” Brigadier General Ali Fadavi said in a speech in the central city of Isfahan on Thursday night.
“The hostile governments are in a position of weakness and passivity and they, themselves, admit it,” the commander added.
“Although they cannot express such weakness because of their arrogant nature, their actions and behavior clearly show that they are unable to resist the (Islamic) Revolution’s power,” the IRGC commander went on to say.
The remarks came against the backdrop of increased tensions between Iran and the US after the Islamic Republic shot down an advanced US spy drone over its territorial waters.
The IRGC said on June 20 that a US spy drone that violated the Iranian territorial airspace in the early hours of the day was shot down by the IRGC Aerospace Force’s air defense unit near the Kooh-e-Mobarak region in the southern province of Hormozgan.
